Dr. Rachana Mumbai: Washing the face with chana dal powder gave excellent results to one of my friend. Generally acne is caused due to oil retention over skin, chana dal has the property of drying so that helps to prevent it.
USA Gary Yuen: It is traditional to scrub with Chana and haldi. Is there a reason Chana is used over other dal? Why not mung, would it be more cooling?
Vd. Tanuja Gokhale: Ideal is Red lentil flour ie Masoor Dal flour which is said to be varnya ie which enhances complexion. But red lentil flour is hardly used in cooking. Gram flour is used commonly n is gd as a scrub being dry in property so its widely used. Ideal use of ubtan is after snehan ie oil massage to remove the extra oil.
Dr. Madhuri Patil Chaudhari: Yes masoor best. Does cause dryness like chana with long term use. Masoor dal + a little mahamanjishthadi oil +kala namak or epsom salt or soda bicarb a pinch, best cleansing n moisturizing.
USA Gary Yuen: Manjistha and turmeric are also among best for acne, yes?
Dr. Sujata Vaidya: Acne is a problem starting with hormones and indigested foods. Unless both are dealt with, all treatments are superficial and temporary.
Dr. Devesh Kumar: So how to deal with it?
Dr. Sujata Vaidya: One of the therapies i found useful is as follows:
For girls: Aelo Vera, Morrings leaves.
For boys: cow ghee.
For both in addition: Teach them how to chew food before eating. Water, water and water. Turmeric, Kruminashak, Jamun and draksha based Fruit seeds and the benefits of sweating.

But if proper mukhdushika where there is kaf dushti is main reason then kafghna aushadhi along with Vaman is beneficial.
